Zoo Fu: Path of the Samurai Zookeeper
When the lights go out at the zoo, the animals gather around the Samurai Zookeeper in a battle of ultimate animal combat!
Punch, kick, fly and flap your way to victory!
Players will control their furry, scaly, and feathered combatants in an uproarious spin on competitive matching games.
Assemble your attack combos from the cards in your hand, then choose an opponent. Fling down your attack with enthusiasm and determination, calling out your moves with energy and style! "I attack you with the Spinning Monkey Punch!" Your opponent looks unimpressed until you throw down your finishing move card, "Of Doooooooom!!!" His face goes white and sweat beads on his brow as he reaches into his cards and…
Will your attack be successful and earn you powerful chi? Will your opponent block your attack, taking your chi and causing you to lose standing in the eyes of the Samurai Zookeeper? Perhaps you need more training in the Zookeeper's dojo! Never fear, though, play continues until the deck is exhausted, so there's plenty of time to hone your skills and change your destiny in this game of skill, luck, and bravado for 3-6 players.
Exceding our funding target will allow us to upgrade components and make this family favorite truly an ultimate experience.

Risks and challenges
As we enter the crowdfunding phase, Zoo Fu: Path of the Samurai Zookeeper is not yet "Print Ready". Game art will need to be completed, and certain stretch goals will require additional art if we fund at those levels, so we have set an extended delivery date to be on the safe side. Every game project is subject to potential production delays, but we believe we've allowed enough wiggle-room for Zoo Fu.
The final challenge is getting the game and rewards out to the backers. Game Salute is well versed in Kickstarter reward fulfillment and we are prepared to meet this challenge for Zoo Fu.Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
